Hmmm, this is hard for me to think of because almost all of my crafts involve cloth, and normally sewing.

I like this idea: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=34734.0
Matching tee-shirts with a picture of the two of you stencilled on it. Though, that'd probably need to be a big box.

A hand-decorated photoframe is a good staple, or a keychain with your picture.

My general stand-by is, think up something mushy, put it on a card, make it all pretty. ^^ My boyfriend is pretty easy to please.

"Before we begin, I would like to say a few words. And here they are: Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak! Thank you."

Back on Craftster for the first time in.... 5 years?

I've decided to MAYBE incorporate something for his car... he's getting a brand new one soon.

guys love pictures of their girls. no denying it.
if your low on money and know someone good with a cam you could set up a nice  backdrop and get portraits taken (and of course frames to go with) or you could pay to have them done obviously

I've decided to MAYBE incorporate something for his car... he's getting a brand new one soon.

He loves displaying pictures of me in his car, he asked me to make him something that will protect the pictures and keep them in place.

So far I've had NO ideas for that, as cars don't have much room for displaying pictures. Any ideas??

Any other ideas for things I could make him for his car without sewing? I already made him an air freshener, so that's out.

VELCRO! Seriously. My dad has pictures of my brother and I on his dashboard neatly displayed and held in place with velcro. It shouldn't damage his dash either, and it's hella cheap at a dollarstore. You could make a strip of 3 photos, the middle being of both of you or something, Put them in tiny wooden frames and put velcro on the back of them.

If he drives a standard you could paint his clutch or something. You can find some really neat peddles in any car shop. Ummm, a personalized license plate? Something that he would obviously have to have say in, but you could purchase it for him. I'm out of ideas. My fiance is carless at the moment, so I'm not at this stage yet! haha

Goodluck ^^

Since you have a plethora of gifts already for this lucky guy, a fun way to deliver them might be to set up a scavenger hunt. They're a lot of work, but the results are always worth it. Hide his gifts around the house, around town, whatever, and leave clues to lead him to the next one. Mushy partners tend to love those things. Perhaps the last clue could lead him to the place you are going to eat dinner at, and you could be waiting with the last present in hand Smiley
